a decade ago, a lawsuit forced our city to use a business tax that is problematic for many reasons. first and foremost, it is a tax on jobs. every time a local employer hires someone there is a business payroll tax that's levied on that person. secondly, it is a tax that is only levied on 10 percent of all businesses and many of these are small businesses who have really been asking for reform for many many years. currently we are the only city in the state of california that uses this business payroll tax. our city government, we spent 6 months earlier this year in conversations with many leaders within the community to propose a change to a so-called gross receipts tax, which is superior on a number of levels. first and foremost, it's a tax on revenue. it's a tax on profit. it's also a progressive tax, unlike the current flat tax it's a tax that exempts small businesses that have revenues of less than a million dollars but it also increases taxes for our most successful and our largest businesses. then the last thing i will mention, it is a tax that will help to recoup the revenues t
parcels that the city acquired and the developer acquired from the state park that are adjacent to alice griffith. so, that's where the first buildings will go. and as we build those buildings and move the residents from their existing units, we'll demolish those units. we are again trying to mime eyes the off sit relocation. >> it's good to know that. >> we can do that where we have room. we can't always do that, but hunters view and alice griffith give us the opportunity to do so. and, you know, obviously the dense ithv of potrero as well as sunnydale is lower so we have the opportunity to keep most of the residents on-site as we build. * density the big question is the source of the funding. we will move as fast as we have funds to build. and, you know, so, that's always the biggest issue. but for now alice and hunters view are moving along. >> and then i guess the current location, it's sounds like those projects are okay. do we relocate them in county or do people have a choice -- do we try to find them housing within san francisco? how does that work? >> i can't speak for the past

,100 in services and that's what i suspect we should be doing. >> thank you. >> if the city needs to generate new revenue for the budget what fees should it institute? >> well, first of all we need to close loop holes. we can't have big office towers sold and pretending they're at the 1978 price so we need to close the loopholes. we need to encourage small business growth. we can't live on facebook alone and make sure a small business owner with an idea city hall makes it easy to grow and start your business because that will drive a dynamic local economy and i think that's the key. >> all right. >> it seems as though we're all avoiding the question, and that is what new fees and what new taxes should we impose and i guess that's because we're all reluctant to do that and we feel the better way is figure out new sources of revenue for the city, so i agree that we need to do things that would enhance the quality of life in san francisco and draw more tourists and expand that center and we're turning away dollars to the city. we need a new facility and we don't have one currently for that and we

(applause and cheers) >> i think that the fact that chicago had elected an african-american mayor in harold washington sort of emphasized with barack that he was coming to a city where blacks were a major presence and had some significance. >> narrator: washington's politics were a living example of what obama was looking for. >> what washington was able to do was to put together these coalitions-- african-americans, latinos and progressive whites. and he was able to pull that together and beat the machine. >> god bless you all and thank you from the bottom of my heart. >> and that kind of coalition building was incredibly influential for barack. >> narrator: obama's laboratory would be the city's south side. >> we had put an ad in a number of newspapers for a community organizer in the south side of chicago. i'm looking for anybody who might be a good organizer, but i particularly need somebody who's african-american. >>
